With the great news today that Georgia Taylor is returning to Coronation Street as Toyah Battersby, let's have a look back at Toyah's life on the show.
Toyah Laverne Battersby joined the show in 1997 when the brash Battersby clan turned up in Coronation Street. Toyah is Janice Battersby's daughter and Leanne's step-sister. (Leanne is Les Battersby's daughter).
Toyah was on the show until 2003 and during that time she...
In 2001 Toyah was raped and left for dead by Phil Simmonds, a man she had befriended after meeting through Spider.
After the ordeal, Toyah returned to college and moved in with Fiz Brown and Maria Sutherland in the flat above the hairdressers' and tried to move on with her life. She had a brief fling with Andy McDonald.
Toyah then started dating one of her former professors, John Arnley, in 2002.
Despite the fact that Maria had an abortion, Toyah
couldn't handle John's infidelity and left for a new life in Sheffield,
before reconciling with her ex-boyfriend Spider Nugent and moving to
London with him, as he had started his own juice company there.
With thanks to Corriepedia for the Toyah story!
